Reconstruction of repeated Quaternary slope failures in the northern South China Sea

Abstract:

A series of Quaternary mass transport deposits (MTDs) with a total areal extent of ~11,000 km2 and a conservative volume estimate of ~1035 km3 are observed in the Pearl River Mouth Basin (PRMB), northern South China Sea (SCS), based on integrated analysis of extensive 2-D/3-D seismic data, multibeam bathymetric data and ODP/IODP wells. Unlike other large MTDs worldwide, the MTDs in this study are not directly sourced from slopes built on major deltaic depositional systems. Moreover, they are ...
